Pacific Outdoor Equipment Peak Oyl Elite Sleeping Pad - 2009 BCS
You beat the trails and bushwhack your way through brush all day, so why not treat yourself to a comfortable sleep after you set-up camp and scarf down dinner? Slip the Pacific Outdoor Equipment Peak Oyl Elite Sleeping Pad under or inside your bag and you're sure to have a good sleep no matter how hard or cold the ground is. Pacific Outdoor Equipment added 10-15% more insulation (thus warmth) with the added Aerogel material in the torso. So pack the Peak Oyl Elite whether you head out in the warmth of summer with no bag or tent or whether you venture into the cold heart of winter with a double-walled tent and down bag.

I absolutely love this pad. The construction seems very sturdy for ground, tent, or lean-to use. I would worry about it with any sharp sticks around, but those could pretty easily be avoided with a ground cloth. The stuff sack provides more than ample room. The mummy shape is completely adequate for anyone who doesn't move around a ton in their sleep--I'm 6'3 and the long worked for me. The sticky squiggle in the middle can actually get a little annoying when you're trying to adjust your sleeping position, but it does help to keep you in place. I've used this pad for backpacking and winter camping in VT and NH and it has worked great so far.
To save weight, there is less foam in the leg area. The R value for the torso area of the pad is 8.0, and the R value in the leg area is 3.5.
